“It’s not impermanence per se, or even knowing that we’re going to die, that is the cause of our suffering, the Buddha taught.

Rather, it’s our resistance to the fundamental uncertainty of our situation. Our discomfort arises from all of our effort to put ground under our feet, to realize our dream of constant okayness.”

— Pema Chödrön, “The Fundamental Ambiguity of Being Human”
